Sunday Stash – Momentus

This week was pretty epic in terms of “getting back to normal”, which is to say I resolved some of the quilt top pile-up that I had going.  Two of the three quilts I finished are donation quilts, AND I even took pictures of them which I will post this week.

The third finish is my Allietare Mystery Quilt from Bonnie Hunter.  I took the plunge and just quilted it on my home machine, having tried a few tips from Sue Nickels who does all her quilts regardless of size on her home machine. Not sure the tips did much since I pretty much devolved back into a lot of tugging and sweating by the time it was all done, but there you are.

I did buy some fat quarters this week in advance of a class I’m taking on Friday at the Atlanta Sewing & Quilt Expo with Cristy FIncher.  More on that project later!

I did also pick up the latest Saturday Sampler blocks:

    1. I wonder how that 30s block would look with HSTs in the place of those outer squares? Well, perhaps just the print ones. I wonder if it would make the block look more like it is spinning?

  1. Woo-hoo! Look at that usage! You know, the way you track usage could be a good inspiration to actually finish quilts, beyond just the finished top stage….Your Saturday sampler blocks look great. I especially love the top one, there is such great contrast.
